Kansas may be far from the
destruction of Hurricane Ka-
trina, but that hasn’t stopped
University of Kansas students
from contributing to the relief
At Saturday’s football game,
the Athletics Department do-
nated $10,000 dollars and col-
lected donations, and two fra-
ternities sold parking spaces to
raise money for hurricane relief.
The game marked the begin-
ning of “Jayhawks Band Togeth-
er: Katrina Relief,” an effort by
the Center for Community Out-
reach to coordinate relief efforts
at the University.
Anton Bengtson, Salina ju-
nior and co-director of the Cen-
ter for Community Outreach,
said the center is sponsoring
donation sites on campus, care
packages for Gulf Coast stu-
dents transferring to the Uni-
versity, and a beneft concert a
week from today to raise money
for the American Red Cross.
Bengtson said the center was
organizing the relief efforts of
all campus groups.
Bengtson said donation sites
would be set up at Wescoe
beach, the Kansas Union, next
to Allen Fieldhouse and at all
residence halls and scholarship
halls for the next few weeks.

President George W. Bush
nominated John G. Roberts Jr.,
yesterday to replace William
Rehnquist as Chief Justice of the
United States Supreme Court.
Rehnquist, 80, died of thyroid
cancer Saturday, after 33 years
on the bench.
Students and faculty at the
KU School of Law are waiting
in anticipation of the next few
days and weeks, in which the
Senate will hold Roberts’ con-
frmation hearing, and Bush will
nominate another member to

Roberts’ Senate confrmation
hearing was set to begin today
but has been delayed until after

Roberts’ hearing will now begin
between Thursday and Monday.
Bush is now charged with
nominating another person to

her retirement July 1. She said

How to help
University student, city collaborate to offer aid for evacuees
By Travis roBineTT
Kansan staff writer
Thousands of refugees from
Hurricane Katrina may be head-
ing to Houston, Dallas or Baton
Rouge, La., but University of
Kansas students and Lawrence
residents are also playing host.
Joining in the effort to help
victims of Hurricane Katrina is
Monique Waters, Kansas City,
Mo., junior. Waters said she and
her sister decided to help some
people they knew in Louisiana.
Twenty eight people, includ-
ing fve children, traveled from
Louisiana to Kansas City, Mo.,
to stay with Waters and her ex-
tended family. The refugees will
stay in fve separate houses.
Waters said the victims have
nothing because they came to
Kansas City after the hurricane
hit. She said eight people ar-
rived by bus on Friday, and the
rest came Sunday night.
Waters is taking donations
and said she has received plenty
of clothing, but she still needs
food and money. She said she
might sit in front of the Kansas
Union sometime soon to ask
for donations and try to get the
word out.
“I guess they will start over,
stay here and get jobs,” Waters
said. “Nobody has any plans
right now.”
Mayor Dennis “Boog” High-
berger announced that the city
of Lawrence was planning to
host at least one family dis-
placed by Hurricane Katrina.
Highberger said he wished
the idea was his, but he cred-
ited Lawrence resident Sara
St. John for the inspiration. St.
John called Highberger and said
she thought if every community
made an effort to adopt a family,
it could help a lot.
Highberger agreed, and he
decided to call on Lawrence
for any kind of help it could of-
fer. Landlords, shoe stores, job
placement agencies, hotels and
dozens of citizens have all come
forward, he said.
A family has already been
chosen, Highberger said. He
said that family, D.J. and Ur-
sula Markey, should arrive in
Lawrence sometime early next
The Markeys are veterans
of the civil rights movement in
New Orleans, and they worked
toward the disability rights
movement in Louisiana, said
Rud Turnbull, co-director of the
Beach Center on Disability of
the University of Kansas.
“They got out with two chang-
es of underclothes and the shirts
on their backs, and they were
lucky,” Turnbull said.

The sTudenT vOice since 1904
By Ryan SchneideR
Kansan staff writer
A new season of Kansas football
kicked off Saturday, and students
had a different view of the game than
in past years.
Student seating at Memorial Sta-
dium was shifted north of the 50
yard line, while reserved seats and
Williams Fund members occupy the
former student seats south of mid-
Student seats were switched after
the visiting team seating was moved
to the southeast corner of the sta-
dium. Last year, the visiting section
was in the north bowl, associate ath-
letics director Jim Marchiony said.
“We switched the sections to
avoid any possible trouble between
students and visitors,” Marchiony
In 2003, when the student and
visiting sections were next to each
other, the Missouri marching band
was pelted with small plastic foot-
balls by students during the game
and after its halftime show.
Student seating is now located in
sections 34 through 39 and the upper
sections of 40 and 41. The marching
band will be in sections 32 and 33.
There are eight sections of re-
served seats and Williams Fund
members separating the student and
visiting sections.
Students’ reactions to the seating
change were mixed.
“I think they’re better, since
they’re closer to midfeld,” Jeremy
Kliewer, Overland Park junior, said.
“They seem like better seats to me.”
However, he did notice one down-
side to the move of the seats.
“I couldn’t hear the band at all,”
Kliewer said. “We couldn’t get into
any of the chants or yells all game.”
Marching band members noted
diffculty with their new seats in the
north bowl.
“It was hard to see when they were
playing on the opposite end,” Andrew
Fyler, Lawrence freshman and band
member said. “I had to watch most of
the game on the video board.”
One caller to The University Daily
Kansan’s Free for All line said he
had waited in line to enter the sta-
dium for an extended period of time
because there was only one entrance
available to students.
Because of the line, another gate
was opened, but several students
said people were allowed to enter
the stadium without having their
tickets checked.

McAllister served with Rob-
erts on a federal rules committee
during the past year and praised
Bush’s decision to nominate him
for Chief Justice.
“I don’t know his stance on every
issue specifcally, but I don’t really
care, because he has great creden-
tials and great experience,” he said.
“He’s a very thoughtful, level-headed
person. I think he’ll be a great Chief
Richard Levy, professor of law,
said that because Roberts is thought
to be conservative, like Rehnquist,
his vote may not dramatically change
the dynamic of the Court.
But Levy said it was unfair to as-
sume how Roberts would vote.
“It’s important to keep in mind
that there are nine justices, and
they’re not preset votes that you
can plug into a case and predict
what the outcome will be,” he
Francis Heller, professor emeritus
of law and political science, warned
not to assume that Roberts would
gain the necessary votes from the
Senate to be confrmed as Chief Jus-
tice. He said he expected heated de-
bates during the hearings.
“The Supreme Court is so crucial
to the life of this nation that when
flling these two positions — regard-
less of who you put in there — peo-
ple are going to say, ‘This isn’t the
man or woman we want,’ or ‘This is
who we want,’” he said.
Cathe Decena, Lansing first-
year law student, said that whom-
ever Bush nominated next and
regardless of whether Roberts is
confirmed, the nation would miss
Rehnquist’s contributions to the
“The law is a living thing,” Decena
said. “And he had the chance to see
it evolve for years and be a huge part
of that evolution.”

avoid each other during tour
BATON ROUGE, La. — Like estranged in-laws
at a holiday gathering, President Bush and Loui-

as both toured a relief center for storm victims
Monday. At their next stop, the Republican
president kissed the Democratic governor on
the cheek, but it wasn’t clear whether they had
made up.
State and federal offcials are all facing public
criticism for a slow response to the crisis.
In front of the cameras during Bush’s visit to
the Gulf Coast states on Monday, the president
and Blanco said little to each other.

introduction other than `Mr. President,’” Blanco
said tersely, turning the microphone over to
Bush after praising emergency management of-

after holiday weekend
LOS ANGELES — Jason Statham delivered
a bigger box-offce package this time, with his
action sequel “Transporter 2” taking in $20.25
million to debut as the top weekend movie.
The followup’s solid pay day over the four-
day Labor Day weekend was more than twice

$9.1 million in its three-day opening weekend in
October 2002.

from “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” which slipped
to second place with $16.6 million after two

But the 81-year-old said he
did not want to take away all
the attention from the athletic
“I want this year to be like all
other seasons, without any un-
due emphasis on me,” he said.
Falkenstien has served as the

hawk athletics for 39 years and
assumed his current role as col-
or commentator in September
He and current play-by-play
announcer, Bob Davis, have
worked together since the fall of
Falkenstien also hosted
television shows for more
than 30 years with basketball
and football coaches, includ-
ing Larry Brown, Don Fam-
brough, Pepper Rogers and
Roy Williams.
As a Lawrence High School
graduate, Falkenstien was the
frst person inducted into the
school’s Hall of Honor. He has
also been inducted into both the
College Football Hall of Fame
and the Naismith Basketball
Hall of Fame in Springfeld,
Mass. In 2001, The Sporting
News named Falkenstien “the
best radio personality in the
“As we travel around the
Big 12, it is obvious how much
everyone respects Max and
how most all media members
know and admire Max,” said
David Lawrence, Jayhawk Ra-
dio Network sideline reporter.
Even though Falkenstien will
retire at the end of the season,
Kansas athletics director Lew
Perkins doesn’t expect Falken-
stien to leave the athletics pro-
gram for good.
“We always want Max to be a
part of our KU Athletics family,”
Perkins said. “He does not plan
to just fade away and that’s just
fne with us.”
As for Falkenstien, he does
not know exactly what the fu-
ture holds for him.
“I’ll worry about it when the
time comes this spring,” Falken-
stien said.
Kevin Harlan, KU alumnus
and NFL and NBA play-by-play
announcer, had been rumored to
be Falkenstien’s possible replace-
ment. That rumor, however, was
quickly dismissed by Jim Marchi-
ony, associate athletics director.
“He’s a terrifc announcer, but
he does play-by-play, and we’re
looking for a color commenta-
tor,” Marchiony said.
Marchiony said that the ath-
letics department had not begun
the search for a replacement
and that any talk would be too
Harlan could not be reached
for comment.
For now, Falkenstien is
content to continue talking
about what he knows best:
“I feel very optimistic about
the football team, which is
much improved from over a
year ago,” Falkenstien said.
“And in basketball we have
a recruiting class that is un-
equaled in recent years. It will
be a good year.”

‘Hawks on a wire

Kansan staff writer
University of Kansas students
looking for an organic alterna-
tive for their hamburgers will
soon have a place to dine.
Local Burger, 714 Vermont
St., is scheduled to open Sept. 12
and will serve hamburgers and
hot dogs made with meat sup-
plied primarily by local farmers
who raise animals without using
antibiotics or hormones.
Hilary Brown, owner, said
her goal was to provide real food
that had respect for the whole
system and that considered the
health of the person eating it.
“I really believe that what we
eat affects our health. The way
foods are raised and what we
do to it are possibly making us
sick,” Brown said.
Brown is a KU graduate and
Lawrence native. She worked
as an occupational therapist
but always catered for friends
and family on the side. She has
dreamt of opening her own res-
taurant for the past eight years,
and, after attending Natural
Gourmet Cookery School in
New York City in 2003, she de-
cided to go through with it.
Brown said she worked with
local farms such as Sunset Ridge
Bison, Rocky Hills Elk Ranch
and Metsker farms that did not
use unnatural additives. The
only type of meat that she had
not found a local source for yet
is turkey, but she said she was
still looking.
“I’m going to shoot for get-
ting as much as possible. Local
is the goal. Local and organic,”
Brown said.
Jordan Ryan, Olathe fresh-
man, said she thought the
restaurant would attract Law-
rence residents who were con-
cerned with the way animals
are raised.
“Most people I know who
don’t eat meat is for reasons
that pertain to the treatment. I
would think that people who
don’t normally eat hamburgers
would eat here,” Ryan said.
Garen Stacey, Manhattan
freshman, said he was not con-
cerned with the treatment of
meat as much as the price of the
“Can’t beat the Wendy’s 99
cents menu,” Stacey said.
Most of the hamburgers Local
Burger will serve will cost about
$5. The restaurant will also have
hot dogs, salads, soups, smooth-
ies and tofu. The tofu will come
from Central Soy Foods in Law-
rence. Brown said she was not
a vegetarian herself, but she is
picky about the meat that she
does eat.
“I only eat meats that I think
use humane and practical meth-
ods of raising them. I want that
animal to have a good life,”
Brown said.
Scott Hartegan, general
manager of Mass. Street Deli,
719 Massachusetts St., said
that he did not foresee Local
Burger’s presence as a threat
to business.
“I would say that it won’t af-
fect us terribly much because
that’s more of a health-food
restaurant. I can see it affecting
more of the health-friendly res-
taurants like Zen Zero,” Harte-
gan said.

It is now official: The anti-war
movement (at least at the Univer-
sity) has lost any sense of reason
and is now just going through the
motions. If you don’t believe me,
just look at last Thursday’s protest
on Wescoe Beach.
Let me begin by saying that
the protesters I talked to were
courteous and politely answered
all of my questions, although I’m
sure after they read this they’ll
wish they hadn’t. After talking to
a few of them, I’m not sure they
even knew exactly why they were
I asked a woman encouraging
students to sign a petition if the
protesters wanted recruitment off
campus because they didn’t think
that students at the university
could make their own decisions
about joining the military. She an-
swered that the protesters didn’t
believe this, but were only exercis-
ing their free speech rights against
the military. I then asked if the
military didn’t have the same free
speech protections. The answer I
got was that the military had the
same First Amendment rights,
but that didn’t stop the protest-
ers from voicing their opinions.
At this point, you should hear
the sound of a needle scratching
off a record in your head. In case
you don’t, let’s recap. At least one
protester — probably many more
— was exercising her free speech
to try to prevent another organi-
zation from exercising its, even
though the protester freely ad-
mitted that the military had free
speech rights to be recruiting on
campus so that students could
make their own decisions about
joining the military. But it gets
The second sign at the pro-
test read, “We will not fight your
wars.” This sign also bothered me
a bit, so I asked another protester
why he didn’t support those who
did fight the wars, our troops.
He replied that he did and things
went downhill from there.
Now I admit, I’m not majoring
in philosophy and I haven’t taken
any logic courses, but to me, a
sign like that implies that every-
one who has chosen to fight for
his country has made the wrong
decision. I made this argument
and also pointed out that it’s aw-
fully hard to say legitimately that
you support people when you
adamantly believe that they have
made a horrible decision and are
ruining our country and another
one. The response I got bordered
on incoherent and the phrase,
“You obviously just don’t under-
stand,” was repeated often.
I realize that some of the pro-
testers on Thursday were prob-
ably as sincere as could be and
really believed in what they were
doing. But, this does not excuse
the fact that their cause is lacking
in reason and intellectual hon-
esty. After attending the protest,
I am more convinced than ever
that the main impetus behind the
anti-war movement on campus
has little to do with actual poli-
cies and a lot to do with a general
disdain for the military and par-
tisan politics. If the protesters re-
ally want to change minds, maybe
next time they will come up with
some coherent reasons why peo-
ple should take them seriously.

I don’t know about you, but
I’m sick of spending my time con-
sumed by self-loathing. I’m too fat,
too freckled, too pale, too hairy, too
this or too that... I’ve spent my life
comparing myself to Page 8, Page
64 or Page 75 in a magazine or the
girl next to me, her mother or that
famous actress on TV.
I understand we’re a society of
consequences: We don’t care un-
til we’ve got skin cancer (tanning
beds), lung cancer (cigarettes make
you thin), acid reflux (bad food),
a daughter taking diet pills (maga-
zines), a screwed-up metabolism,
a burst silicon implant or a friend
who dies tragically young in a car
wreck because she has neglected to
eat for a few weeks straight.
So sue me. I was watching
America’s top model today. I used
to be vocal about my hatred for
television, but have begun, out of
boredom, to force my opinions on
this tool that can be used for vari-
ous learning objectives, especially
when trying to understand certain
ideas and convey them in a man-
ner that 13-year-old girls could
I always pick the underdog.
You know: The girl who everyone
thinks has an eating disorder or
the one who used to be “fat.” And
you know what they mean by “fat”
right? Size eight and up. Come on,
ladies, Tyra Banks (the host of the
show) is a size eight and she is a
Victoria Secret model.
During the summer, I found out
that I was one of two women from
Lawrence to receive an opportu-
nity to be included in From the
Inside Out, a peer education group
that facilitates discussions about
body image, eating disorders and
the mass media. You know what
my father said to me?
“It would help if you didn’t wear
such tight clothing.” Translation:
No one likes to see a “fat girl” em-
brace her “fat.” Of course I made
a point to tell him that these little
diatribes were not a positive influ-
ence on my self-esteem. A silence
followed, and then an excuse. “But,
you’re strong; you can’t use that as
an excuse.”
Growing up in a world of tall,
tan, blonde and beautiful people,
we all suffer from this “seen but un-
seen illness.” I learned both to envy
and to despise these media figure-
heads. I hated my freckles; I would
sneak into tanning beds trying to
make them merge. I would dye
my hair, trying to make it blonde.
I would work out, work out, eat
a bagel and work out some more.
I was hopped up on diet pills and
Prozac and I didn’t even bother to
question why.
And then I realized what was
happening. These negative feelings
I had for the Kate Mosses and the
Heidi Klum’s who had nice bod-
ies naturally were their own stan-
dards of acceptance and rejection.
One that, just as the hatred for the
curves, freckles and wrinkles that
our bodies may display, needs to be
abolished as well. This movement
toward more realistic standards
does not mean that we need to
negate the women who have been
“lucky” enough to set that bar so
high. I guarantee they have their
own stories to tell.
Instead of competing with other
women, instead of boosting our
egos by finding “flaws” and pro-
moting self-loathing, we should
preach acceptance. There is no rea-
son why a woman should hate her
hips or J-Lo shouldn’t love her ass.
We should accept who we are and
how we were are made.
We’re tired of complying with
beauty standards that are not
achievable. The National Organi-
zation of Women has declared Oct.
19 “Love Your Body Day.” Take
a break from those fashion maga-
zines, stay away from mass media,
wear your sweats and stop weigh-
ing yourself! Stop buying products
that use negative images of women.
Or get involved by joining organi-
zations that embrace positive body
image, like From the Inside Out.
It’s time that we establish our
own beauty standards and break
this cycle of competition for some-
thing most of us can never obtain.
✦ Lawson is an Olathe senior in

I recently broke up with my
boyfriend, and you know what
word I hate? “Ex-boyfriend.” As
in: “There’s your ex-boyfriend’s
car” or “Your ex-boyfriend likes
that song.”
A relationship that lasts long
enough to be considered a rela-
tionship doesn’t just disappear
overnight. Those feelings can last
for a long time, especially if only
one person wanted the relation-
ship to end.
There should be a transition
word that encompasses the hope
that you’ll get back together along
with the relief of making the right
decision combined with the fer-
vent wish that he won’t be the first
to have sex with someone else.
“Ex-boyfriend” doesn’t cut it. It
has a finality and a scary quality
that says “I don’t have the ability to
make relationships last,” or “Now
I have to start all over again.” How
about “post-relationship co-suffer-
Whatever you call it, break-ups
always suck no matter when they
happen. And whether we’re the
break-ee or the break-er, break-
ups have an effect on our lives that
only matters of the heart can have.
A break-up can be consuming or it
can be liberating — or both — and
chances are, almost all of us will
deal with a break-up while in col-
Most of us are in our late teens
and early-to-mid twenties. We
don’t always have tons of experi-
ence with dating and one of the
biggest mistakes we tend to make
is staying in a relationship when
it’s time to move on.
It’s hard to look objectively at a
relationship and say “This isn’t de-
livering what I want.” It’s also un-
fair to the other person to remain
in a relationship for fear of hurting
the person even though you no
longer want to be with them. The
pain will always be worse later.
You may lose friends in the “di-
vorce,” so be prepared. When two
people part, some things can’t be
shared or split down the middle.
As someone who has been friends
with a broken-up couple after its
break-up, take it from me that it’s
almost impossible to treat each
one equitably.
A new semester brings with it
many new opportunities. New
classes, new jobs, new friends and
new digs all combine to open a
world of positive changes in our
lives as we return to school or
come for the first time. Sometimes
painful choices have to be made.
I’ll call it a fall cleaning of sorts.
The most important thing to
remember when dealing with an
“ex” situation is that sometimes
our emotions get the best of us.
Don’t call him at three o’clock in
the morning and yell. Don’t drunk
dial him for a booty call. Don’t as-
sume that he feels the same heart-
wrenching pain or profound relief
that you feel. And don’t ever con-
vince yourself that you can’t move
on or feel love again. Also: E-mail
can be dangerous, choose wisely.
Conventional college wisdom
— which is to say I heard this
somewhere — tells us that it takes
as long to get over someone as
the relationship lasted. I guess I’m
facing a long, hard nine months.
But, I’m looking forward to seeing
what happens and for all of you
out there who are recently single
or will be soon, take heart: There’s
nothing that can take your mind
off an “ex” quite like too much

By Terence HunT
The AssociATed Press
WASHINGTON — Seizing a
historic opportunity to reshape the
Supreme Court, President Bush
swiftly chose conservative John
Roberts as chief justice Monday
and weighed how to fll another va-
cancy that could push the nation’s
highest court to the right on issues
from abortion to affrmative action.
Polished and plainspoken, Rob-
erts had been on a likely track to
be confrmed as an associate jus-
tice and it appeared Bush turned
to him for the top job to avoid an
acrimonious fght at a volatile mo-
ment. Bush was on the defensive
about the administration’s sluggish
response to Hurricane Katrina and
his poll ratings had fallen to their
lowest point of his presidency.
“For the past two months mem-
bers of the United States Senate
and the American people have
learned about the career and char-
acter of Judge Roberts,” Bush said.
“They like what they see.”
Roberts’ nomination, just two
days after the death of Chief Justice
William H. Rehnquist, raised fears
among Democrats about a right-
ward shift as Bush flls two open-
ings on the nine-member court.
Democrats have been frustrated
by Roberts’ popularity and said the
Senate must take a closer look at
his new nomination.
“The stakes are higher and the
Senate’s advice and consent respon-
sibility is even more important,” said
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid,
D-Nev. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy,
D-Mass., expressed concerns about
the court’s balance.
“Replacing two justices at the
same time will have an enormous
impact on the court and on the lives
and liberties of all Americans for de-
cades,” said Ralph Neas, president
of the liberal advocacy group Peo-
ple for the American Way, which
opposes Roberts’ nomination.
Senate Majority Leader Bill
Frist, R-Tenn., said Roberts was
“one of the most well qualifed can-
didates to come before the Senate.”
He said he still expects Roberts to
be confrmed before the new court
session begins Oct. 3.
Like Rehnquist, Roberts is deep-
ly conservative. He was nominated
in July to succeed retiring Justice
Sandra Day O’Connor, who an-
gered conservatives with her tie-
breaking votes on contentious
issues like abortion restrictions,
campaign fnance limits, discrimi-
nation laws, and religion.
The Roberts-for-Rehnquist nom-
ination would not affect the bal-
ance, but Bush could force an ideo-
logical shift by replacing O’Connor
with a reliably conservative vote.
O’Connor has offered to remain
on the bench until her successor is
named, and Bush called her Mon-
day to say he would move quickly
to fnd her replacement as well.
He is not expected to name a new
O’Connor successor this week.
After turning twice to Roberts,
Bush faces increasing pressure
to name a woman or a minority.
Some conservatives fretted Bush
would pick Attorney General Al-
berto Gonzales whose views on
abortion and other issues have
raised their suspicions.
“The president promised in two
campaigns to nominate justices
who will faithfully uphold the text
and principles of the Constitution,”
said Wendy Long, counsel for the
conservative Judicial Confrmation
Network. “One would expect the
president to nominate more excep-
tional judicial conservatives like
Judge Roberts for as many vacan-
cies as occur.”
But Brad Berenson, a former
Bush White House lawyer, said,
“My own view is that Judge Gon-
zales would be a more conservative
justice” than O’Connor.
Other possible replacements
include federal courts of appeals
judges Edith Clement, Edith Hol-
lan Jones and Emilio Garza. Also
mentioned are judges J. Michael
Luttig, Samuel A. Alito Jr., James
Harvie Wilkinson III and Michael
McConnell, and former Solicitor
General Theodore Olson, lawyer
Miguel Estrada and former deputy
attorney general Larry Thompson.

For Jayhawks, a win is a win
By Ryan Colaianni
Kansan staff writer
Kansas football coach Mark
Mangino didn’t get the quarter-
back performance he wanted in
Kansas’ season opener against
Florida Atlantic, and he’s still not
sure who the starting quarterback
will be for next weekend’s game.
Junior quarterback Adam
Barmann lasted just more than a
quarter before Mangino replaced
him with senior Brian Luke for
the remainder of the contest.
After the Jayhawks’ 30-19 vic-
tory against the Owls, Mangino
said he was prepared to use two
quarterbacks in each game from
now on.
“We will rotate,” he said. “Our
objective is to win and have a
successful offense. I think it is a
positive. We have two guys who
can play. If we have to play two,
we will play two every week.”
On the team’s frst drive of
the game Barmann threw on all
three plays, but he didn’t com-
plete a pass, and the team was
forced to punt.
Overall, Barmann was 5-11 for
56 yards with a rushing touch-
down. He threw one interception
when he greatly overthrew junior
cornerback Charles Gordon.
Mangino said he intended to
use Luke during the game and had
envisioned Luke would get his op-
portunity during the second quar-
ter. With 9:33 remaining in the half,
Mangino put Luke in the game.

Serious fans show true colors
By MiRanda lenning
Kansan senior sportswriter
Editor’s Note — Are you a
Kansas football fanatic? Maybe
just a fan of Kansas athletics?
Each week, Kansan reporter Mi-
randa Lenning will be looking for
the best Kansas fans of the game.
Want to show the school how
big of a fan you are? If you have
something planned before the
game, send an e-mail to sports@ and let us know.
It was a beautiful Friday night
outside Memorial Stadium —
the perfect place to crash after a
long night at the bars.
Just ask Jesse Plous. He
spent the whole night camped
out in a tent in the grass out-
side the stadium.
Plous is one of the three
members of “The Blue Man”
group, a company of fans who
paint themselves blue for every
Kansas home football and soft-
ball game. Because of Plous’
overnight endeavor, members of
group had prime front row seats
in the student section.
“We do it because we love
Kansas football,” Plous said.
Normally, Plous, New York
City senior, and his group mem-
bers, Josh Bailey, Lawrence se-
nior, and Will Paulson, Wichita
senior, paint their entire bodies
blue, leaving room for “K-U-!”
to be painted on their stomachs.
Bailey is the traditional bearer
of the K, while Paulson reserves
rights to the U. Plous has the
exclamation point. But on Sat-
urday afternoon, Plous and Bai-
ley found themselves among a
slightly larger group than usual,
despite missing Paulson. They
had enough stomachs to spell
out “J-A-Y-H-A-W-K-S!”
“Normally it’s just us. We’ve
been doing this for two years,”
Bailey said. “But we have more
people this time. We pretty much
take anyone we can fnd.”
Plous doesn’t really remem-
ber falling asleep late Monday
morning, but he does remem-
ber a friend of the group bring-
ing him doughnuts at 1:30 a.m.
And he defnitely remembers
Bailey waking him up at 7 a.m.
on Saturday.
“I didn’t get a lot of sleep,”
Plous said. “But it was worth it
because I was frst in line to get
in the stadium.”

Add another high-profle recruit
to the Jayhawks’ 2005 recruiting
class. Brandon Rush, a 6-foot-6
small forward from Kansas City,
Mo., will defnitely wear a Kansas
uniform this year. Rush joins Ma-
rio Chalmers, Micah Downs and
Julian Wright in one of the best
recruiting classes of 2005.
After more than a month of
questions regarding Rush’s aca-
demic paperwork — he attended
four different high schools — the
NCAA Clearinghouse cleared
Rush for an athletic scholarship
late Friday afternoon.
“Brandon and his family right-
fully have been waiting for posi-
tive feedback from the NCAA
Clearinghouse concerning his
eligibility,” coach Bill Self said.
“We received information from
the Clearing-
house today,
and Brandon is
eligible to pur-
sue a college
career this aca-
demic year.”
Rush initially
declared for the
NCAA draft
but later with-
drew his name. He has been on
campus for the past two weeks
and enrolled in classes at the
University last week. Rush said
he waited on a defnite answer
from the Clearinghouse before
he began attending classes and
working out with the team.
“I’m very happy about com-
ing to school and getting this
out of the way,” Rush said.
The long wait left Rush and

Resilient and improved, Brian Luke is the ‘Hawks best bet
Ask anyone and they’ll tell
you that Brian Luke has greatly
improved since he was frst in-
troduced to fans two years ago in
a blowout loss at Kansas State.
Luke flled in for Bill Whit-
temore, who left the game with
an injury. Luke came in and
didn’t exactly wow fans in a
42-6 defeat against the Wild-
The injury to Whittemore and
Luke’s performance led to the
introduction of junior quarter-
back Adam Barmann the next
week at Texas A&M.
Ironically, two years lat-
er, it’s the very same Brian
Luke who gives Kansas the
best chance at being success-
ful. That was apparent after
Luke replaced Barmann in the
second quarter of the 30-19
season opening victory over
Florida Atlantic on Saturday
After Barmann struggled in
the frst quarter, Luke stepped
in and showed poise and conf-
Now, some would tell you he
completed fewer than half the
passes he attempted. They may
not tell you that receivers fat-
out dropped several passes, two
of which would have been sure
Despite the statistics, Luke is
starting to show the same com-
mand that Whittemore, who
was the best quarterback during
the Mark Mangino era, showed
as leader.
This started last year against
Texas when Luke was forced
into action after injuries side-
lined the other three quar-
terbacks ahead of him. Fans
were uncertain about the Jay-
hawks hopes for winning, but
Luke stepped up and nearly
helped upset the then No. 6-
ranked Longhorns.
The next week, Luke won
Mangino his frst Big 12 Con-
ference road game with an im-
proved and poised performance
at Missouri.
Ask Gary Pinkle.
This year, Luke has seemed
to pick up where he left off,
and if he can stay healthy, he
could lead the Jayhawks fur-
ther than they’ve been a long
On offense, Kansas must rely
on a consistent leader that the
team will rely on.
The Jayhawks don’t need
someone to be a gunslinger, but
instead, someone more like a
feld general that will manage the
game and be a rock for the team.
Ask Trent Dilfer.
In 2000, Dilfer lead the Bal-
timore Ravens to a Super Bowl
victory with a confdent and
superb defense and by playing
mistake-free football. Unfortu-
nately, it looks like Ray Lewis
won’t be lining up on defense
this Saturday for Kansas, but
there are some pretty good play-
ers who will.
If Kansas is serious about
the Big 12 Championship
chase, it needs leadership at
quarterback that refects that
which is on defense, the kind
that shows initiative and per-
Luke already has shown
this by telling Mangino after
spring practice that he wanted
to be considered for the start-
ing job, after it was assumed
he would be the backup quar-
He has gotten to this point
by putting in yeoman’s work at
improving his skills and earning
the respect of coaches, team-
mates and fans — 2003 couldn’t

urday could further prove that
Kansas has found itself a quar-
terback. But don’t ask me.

The women fnished with a total of
56 points, which earned them overall
frst place honors in the 5K race.
The men’s team won its 8K race with
20 points overall. Scoring was based on
the positions the frst fve runners of the
team crossed the fnish line. If a runner
came in frst, for example, his or her
team was awarded one point.
If the next closest runner came in
eighth overall, the team was awarded
eight more points for a total of nine. In
the meet, the lower the score, the bet-
ter the result. Kansas had four of the
top fve runners on the men’s team. The
team was led by sophomore Colby Wis-
sel. Junior runner Tyler Kelly fnished
second and senior runner Eric Sloan
placed third. Senior runner Joshy Ma-
dathil rounded out the race with a ffth
place fnish for the Jayhawks.
Wissel’s frst place fnish came
from a time of 25:33 in the 8K race.
“I was happy with how I ran,”
Wissel said. “I think it was a great
way to start off the season.”
Wissel said that he was happy
with how the team performed, but
the team could still improve. Sopho-
more runner Connie Abbot fnished
in seventh place and led the women
with a time of 19:19 in the 5K race.
Junior runner Laura Major fnished
in 10th with a time of 19:56.

pate in the Kansas State Wildcat In-
vitational on Sept. 10 in Topeka.

Kansas volleyball dropped its frst
match of the season Friday night in
the fnale of the Brigham Young/
Utah Valley State Challenge in Pro-
vo, Utah.
BYU defeated Kansas 3-1 in the
second of two matches of the day for
the Jayhawks. Kansas fell to a 4-1 re-
cord, while BYU improved to 3-0.
The Jayhawks committed six serv-
ing miscues in game one, which they
lost 30-27. Kansas wasted a .343 hit-
ting percentage as well.
Kansas volleyball coach Ray Bechard
said his team was not able to overcome
inaccuracy in serving, while BYU was
effcient and aggressive.
“They put more pressure on us with
their serve than we did on them,” he
said. “They had us back on our heels.”
The Jayhawks bounced back to
take game two 30-28. With the game
tied at 23, Kansas ran off seven of the
next 12 points. Junior outside hitter
Jana Correa recorded three kills in
the latter portion of the game.
The Jayhawks could not carry that
momentum into game three. The
Cougars jumped out to an early lead
and never looked back on their way
to a 30-22 victory. Kansas hit a mea-
ger .139 on the attack.
BYU sealed the match in game four.
After Kansas rallied to tie the match at
24, BYU sprinted to a 30-28 victory.
BYU’s junior middle blocker Lindsy
Hartsock led the Cougars to victory
with a game-high 20 kills. Kansas was
paced by Correa, who tallied 14.
Kansas sophomore opposite hit-
ter/setter Emily Brown said her
team needed a match against a tough
team like BYU to be prepared for the
tough matches that lie ahead.
“It takes something like this for us
to focus,” Brown said. “This was our
frst true challenge. It will help us re-
focus for the upcoming schedule and
the Big 12.”
Bechard said the team would have
to recover quickly from the setback.
“We have no choice but to bounce
back,” Bechard said. “We have a huge
week next week, and then we have
the Big 12 schedule coming up.”
One bright spot for Kansas was
that it fought back after falling be-
hind early in games. Even so, the
Jayhawks could not close out those
“Against Montana State we fought
back too,” Brown said. “We are having
a hard time fnishing games right now.”
Kansas played Montana State in
an earlier match on Friday. In that
match, Kansas was too much for its
counterparts from Bozeman, Mont.
Senior middle blocker Josi Lima had
a huge match in the Jayhawks 3-1
victory. She recorded 21 kills, nine
digs and fve blocks to lead the Jay-
hawks. Junior libero Jamie Mathew-
son had a career-high 19 digs in
defense. Four Jayhawks fnished in
double fgures in kills.

Long-time wide receiver ends
prolifc football career
DENVER — The greatest receiver of all time
realized he would be no better than the fourth
receiver for the Denver Broncos. It was no way
for Jerry Rice to end his career, so he called it
quits after 20 sensational seasons.
“I never thought I’d ever see this day,” Rice
said Monday during an emotional news confer-
ence at Broncos team headquarters.
The 42-year-old receiver, a frst-round draft
pick out of tiny Mississippi Valley State in 1985,
leaves the feld with 38 NFL records, including
the most career receptions (1,549), yards receiv-
ing (22,895) and touchdowns receiving (197).
He was a slave to details, a master of route-
running precision, a good guy off the feld and
a workout junkie both in season and out.
Rice told the players he was retiring during
a short meeting held after his public announce-
ment. The Broncos gave him a standing ovation.
“Not many people that own all the records
spend that type of commitment and give that
type of commitment in the offseason,” Broncos
coach Mike Shanahan said. “That’s why, in my
opinion, he’s the greatest player to ever play the
An avid golf player who was often spotted
playing at the resort hotel where he stayed
while in Denver, Rice said he was “looking for-
ward to the next phase of my life.”
“There are opportunities out there. I’ll ap-
proach them like I did football, with determina-
tion and pride,” he said.

One goal was all the Jayhawks
needed to turn a Wednesday
night victory into a Friday night
winning streak.
A slow second half followed
an even slower frst half, but
Kansas (2-1-1) defeated Arkan-
sas (2-1-0), 1-0, breaking their
1-1-1 overall series tie.
“The frst half wasn’t great but
in the second half, I thought we
played pretty well,” Francis said.
“I thought we played as well as
we did this weekend — but we
also won the game.”
The frst half had few high-
lights, except for one rarely-seen
With fve minutes remaining
in the opening half, senior for-
ward Kimberly Karfonta gave a
perfect fip-throw that sailed at
least as far as any Kansas corner
kick this season.
“I guess it’s something unique
that I do,” Karfonta said.
As to why that wasn’t a more
regular part of each game, Kar-
fonta said that there were only
certain situations in which fip-
throws were needed.
“Sometimes it works bet-
ter on a feld with more space,
which is why I don’t do it here
sometimes,” Karfonta said.
The second half pace was
faster, and Kansas out-shot Ar-
kansas 14-3 in the last 45 min-
utes of play.
At the 64 minute mark, the
0-0 tie was broken with a score
from freshman forward Jessica
Junior midfelder Nicole
Cauzillo passed Bush the ball,
and she scored from 15 yards
“It was a great goal. She fn-
ished it really well,” Francis
Bush said, “We defnitely
played a lot better than we did
on Wednesday. I wish the score
would’ve been a little more, but
it’s all right.
“The intensity was there, and
it was good for us to get another
win,” she said.
Bush’s lone score was the
only in the game, despite out-
shooting the Lady ’Backs 22-5.
“There were enough opportu-
nities,” Francis said. “We prob-
ably should’ve buried a couple
more to put the game beyond
doubt. But at the end of the day,
we’ll take the win for sure,”
Regardless of Friday’s win,
Francis said that his team still
needed to work on playing a full
game to their capability, not just
a half.
“We’ve played well and not
won. Then, we’ve played bad
and won. So is it possible for us
to play well and win?” Francis
said. He said he looked forward
to the team’s practices before
the next game.
Kansas will take on Pepper-
dine and San Diego in San Di-
ego, Calif., next weekend.

KU freshman forward Jessica Bush makes the game-winning goal against Arkansas Friday, while Arkansas freshman midfelder Abbey Wilburn looks on.
Kansas defeated Arkansas 1-0 at the Jayhawk Soccer Complex, improving its record to 2-1-1.

Jeff Foster hasn’t played a com-
petitive football game since 2002,
but that didn’t stop him from mak-
ing two of the biggest plays of the
game Saturday night against Flor-
ida Atlantic.
In the third quarter of the game,
senior quarterback Brian Luke
connected with Foster on a 17-
yard touchdown that gave Kansas
a lead it would not give back.
“It was a great read by Brian
Luke,” Foster said. “They were
playing cover two, and he placed
it right in the hole. It was one of
the best feelings I’ve had in my
Although Kansas coach Mark
Mangino was not surprised by
Foster’s performance, his name
wasn’t even on the pre-game depth
chart. There were at least six wide
receivers listed ahead of him.
“He earned a right to be out
there,” Mangino said. “He is in
the rotation, so we’ll count on him
as we go. He made some big plays,
and we’re excited he’s going to
help us out.”
Mangino said Foster was im-
pressive in practice and dedicated
himself to the summer workout
“He has a real want-to kind
of attitude,” Mangino said. “He
wants to prove he can play at the
Division I level at the University of
Kansas, and we are convinced he
Foster, a sophomore wide re-
ceiver, transferred to Kansas after
spending a season at the Univer-
sity of Northern Iowa. During the
2003 season, Foster took a redshirt
and played on the scout team.
After the season with Northern
Iowa, Foster looked into other
schools where he could play foot-
ball, and Kansas became a natural
fit last fall.
“I have a lot of family history at
KU,” Foster said. “All the coaches
were really accepting of me trans-
ferring, so it worked out.”
Foster walked on to the football
team and had to sit out a year af-
ter transferring. He played on the
offensive scout team and was of-
fensive scout player of the week
before the Iowa State game last
The two-year break from
games was well worth it to
Foster with his performance
on Saturday.
Aside from his touchdown
catch, Foster made another big
play for the Jayhawks. Early in the
fourth quarter, on third down and
eight, Luke connected with Foster
for a critical first down. This play
led to a 32-yard field goal by soph-
omore kicker Scott Webb and
gave Kansas a 9-point lead.
Freshman wide receiver Mar-
cus Herford, who took a redshirt
last season, was one of the re-
ceivers listed ahead of Foster on
the depth chart, but never saw
the field Saturday. Another wide
receiver listed ahead of Foster
was freshman Dexton Fields,
who also took a redshirt last
season. Fields played but failed
to make a catch.
Foster was all smiles after the
game but admitted there would be
one thing better then his first ca-
reer touchdown.
“I think a Big 12 Championship
would be better,” Foster said.
After his performance in the
first game, Foster will now have an
opportunity to contribute toward
capturing that goal.

Cheers to the kickers
Punter Kyle Tucker had
fans impressed all day with
his booming punts. Kicker
Scott Webb got one of the
biggest cheers after he sent
a fourth-quarter kickoff
through the uprights. Some-
one has been working out.
Jeers to the new boards
Fans liked the idea of the
screens but were not in fa-
vor of how they were used.
Instead of “Go Jayhawks”
on the screens, several fans
suggested they should fea-
ture game scores and stats,
as they had at the half.
Best Game Day attire
The ladies in the first row
with Beak ’em Hawks painted
on their stomachs are the win-
ners. Bonus points for having
spaces in between words.
Poor fan etiquette
Anyone with a “Muck
Fizzou” shirt. In case they
didn’t get the memo, we
only sport “Muck Fizzou”

Coaches are pleased with first use of instant replay
DALLAS — Nebraska coach
Bill Callahan was one of the
staunchest proponents of instant
replay in the Big 12. He still is, even
after five plays were reviewed in the
Cornhuskers’ season opener.
There were eight Big 12 home
games in which instant replay was
used for the first time over the week-
end. There were seven reviews, the
five at Nebraska and one each in
the Texas and Oklahoma games.
“They were possession calls
and boundary calls and things
of that nature. I think it was
well-done,” Callahan said Mon-
day during the Big 12 coaches
conference call. “The calls were
well represented and logically
thought out before they pulled
the trigger and asked for a re-
play. What occurred was valid,
was logistical.”
Two calls were overturned
Saturday in the 25-7 victory over
Maine. An interception by Maine’s
Daren Stone was called good after
initially ruled an incomplete pass,
and replay officials also overturned
a reception by Nebraska’s Terrence
Officials at the Oklahoma game
used a replay to determine that
a Sooners punt didn’t break the
plane of the end zone.
That call put TCU inside the 1
rather than the 20 to start a posses-
sion, but the Frogs still won 17-10
in the biggest upset of the opening
“Even if it goes against us, I told
(the official), I thought it was fair,”
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said.
Under the Big 12 instant replay
rule, coaches can’t ask for a re-
Stoops was surprised that an-
other play — in which he thought
the Sooners had caused a fumble
— wasn’t looked at by officials.
The seven reviews in the Big 12
home games took an average of
just 1 minute, 45 seconds each.
As long as the calls are right, the
coaches said they would go with
the system.
“We’re all in an agreement,”
Iowa State coach Dan McCarney
said. “Anything we can do to make
sure we get calls right and give
players the opportunity win foot-
ball games, I’m all for it.”
“He earned a
right to be out there.
He is in the rotation,
so we’ll count on him
as we go.”

Luke went 11-24 for 121
yards and a touchdown.
Several of his passes were
dropped, including four
consecutive passes in the
third quarter that, had they
been caught, would have re-
sulted in touchdowns. Luke,
though, was not pleased
with his performance.
“There is defnitely area
for improvement, I’ll tell you
that,” Luke said. “I am hap-
py with the win but defnitely
have to come back next week
and watch the tape. There are
a lot of areas to improve.”
Mangino said that both
quarterbacks did well in
some areas and that he was
pleased with parts of Luke’s
“It took him a little while,
but he got into a rhythm,”
Mangino said. “He recog-
nized all the blitzes. He made
a couple of the throws that he
probably would like to have
back. For the most part he
got into the rhythm, and we
continued to go with him.”
After the game, Mangino
would not say that the quar-
terback job was a controver-
sy. Both quarterbacks had
the luxury of the offensive
line protecting well, which
gave them time to throw, and
it also opened up a running
game that gained 201 yards.
“I am really pleased
with the offensive line
play for the first game,”
Mangino said. “We ran
the ball well, protected
extremely well.”
Freshman quarterback
Kerry Meier, believed to be
a challenger for the backup
job, was not dressed for
Saturday’s game. Mangino
said that Meier had a condi-
tion that was caught by an
advance medical screening
that all new players have.
“The problem is being ad-
dressed. It is being taken care
of. He has some more things
that need to be done, some
procedural work,” Mangino
said. “It is a situation where
we are very fortunate that
we caught something that
may have gone undetected
had we not had some ad-
vance medical screening for
new players here.”
Mangino said Meier would
be fne but gave no timetable
as to when he would return
to the playing feld. He said
he would defnitely be out
this week. Mangino would
not elaborate as to what
Meier’s condition was.

The Longhorns were the unan-
imous selection for frst place.
After the frst weekend of college
football. Texas destroyed Loui-
siana-Lafayette 60-3 at home,
and was just about the only Big
12 Conference team that looked
good in its frst game. If Texas
wins at Ohio State next week,
the Longhorns could stay at the
top for a long time.
Oklahoma was the biggest
loser of the week but still man-
aged to stay ranked third. The
Sooners easily had the most
surprising loss of the week-
end, falling at home to the TCU
Horned Frogs 17-10. Though
Oklahoma gets a vote of con-
fdence for now, the Power
Rankings won’t look kindly
upon another home loss to an
unranked opponent.
The only other interesting
story line of the week was the
battle between Oklahoma State
and Baylor that now exists for
last place. Oklahoma State was
ranked 11th, but one of the vot-
ers picked them as the worst
team. Baylor, who came out in
last place, was picked 11th by
one of the voters.

✦ ARIES (March 21-April 19)
★★★★★ Others seem to be
ready, willing and able to pitch
in. You accomplish a lot and gain
new insight into those around
you. Be willing to break past your
normal thought patterns, and
you will ultimately gain. Walk in
another’s shoes.

✦ TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
★★★ You put in a stellar
performance right now, causing
others to step back and applaud,
or at least admire your abilities.
You get the job done. A partner
revises his or her attitude toward
you. This might be a continuing
✦ GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
★★★★ You might want to
explain a lot, but somehow ac-
tions mean more than words. Let
your creativity surge, and you
have a way of enchanting others.
Be more observant about those
around you. You will learn a lot.

✦ CANCER (June 21-July 22)
★★★ If you can stay home, do,
even if it means working from
there. You will feel much better
and more creative in this setting
right now. You become a trouble-
shooter and handle a crisis well.
Curb spending.
✦ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
★★★★★ Loosen up and drop
your shield. Good news will head
in your direction if you put your-
self out there and reach out to
others. Your creativity surges, no
matter where you direct it. There
are no problems, only solutions.
✦ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
★★★★ Finally, money seems
to be heading toward you. Of
course, this isn’t a money tree.
So although you might feel
wealthy today, don’t think this
will be your status forever. You
could get a pay raise. Your fam-
ily and your domestic life are

✦ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
★★★★★ For once, you can do
no wrong. Loosen up and enjoy
yourself. You might find a differ-
ent style of communicating to be
more effective. Change plans and
adjust to others. You have nothing
to lose.
✦ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
★★★ Know when to back off.
You have more information than
others do, but you cannot share
all the facts right now. Use cau-
tion with money. Consider revis-
ing your budget or portfolio. Be
willing to do your own research.
Your instincts are right-on.

✦ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
★★★★★ As the result of your
flexibility, you come out a win-
ner. Others appreciate the way
you can transform a situation
through your own acumen and
perceptions. Meetings serve your

✦ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
★★★ Others turn to you for
advice. You intuitively know what
to say. Perhaps the best way of
teaching is through example. You
seem to be able to follow through
on work and other commitments.

✦ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
★★★★★ Stretch your wings
and look at a situation with re-
newed eyes. A different perspec-
tive helps you resolve a problem.
You understand what is going on
with a friend. Perhaps you need
to do some changing, too.

✦ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
★★★★★ A partner might be
more helpful than you thought
possible. If you are attached, he
or she might be getting a pay
raise. You appreciate what this
person does for your life. Do more
together in public.
✦ HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday,
Sept. 6, 2005: Listen to your
instincts concerning money,
and you will see a lot of money
head in your direction. Whether
you discipline yourself and
hold on to some of this surplus
is your choice. You could hit a
major money peak this year. Take
advantage of this opportunity.
Communication flourishes from
the winter on. You will meet
people easily. Your family and
your domestic life become more
important than in previous years.
If you are single, you will enjoy
many people and might not be
ready to commit for a while. If
you are attached, work on your fi-
nances together. Schedule some
more time together out and about.

98 Degrees star
runs for mayor
CINCINNATI — While pop
singer Justin Jeffre was
speaking at a rally in his bid
for mayor, dozens of young
women were backstage try-
ing to talk to his 98 Degrees
bandmate Nick Lachey.
Lachey, husband of actress
Jessica Simpson, made a
pitch on stage for Jeffre’s
candidacy as the group re-
united for a rare appearance
“It’s a very important
time for Cincinnati,” Lachey
said. “Don’t take it lightly.
This is a big deal — and this
guy knows what he’s talking
After Saturday’s rally, the
band, which hasn’t appeared
together in concert in four
years, moved to a nightclub
for a $10-a-person Jeffre for
Mayor fundraiser.
Jeffre, 32, is one of seven
candidates in the nonparti-
san Sept. 13 mayoral prima-
ry; the two top vote-getters

want all of the time his friend

At about 9 a.m. Saturday,

we wanted to represent our love

With the same idea as “The

of “The 700 Club” took turns
holding their place in line. One
person would stand in line for
about an hour while the other
members would go tailgate.
Then a different person would

The plan turned out well, and
the club also took front row
seats in the student section, just
a few sections away from the

Sure, the number of fans
camped outside of Memorial
Stadium doesn’t rival that of the
number of students lined up on
the walls of Allen Fieldhouse
days before a home basketball
game. But on Saturday, the new-
ly relocated student section at
Memorial Stadium was packed
with cheering fans.
“I am betting on complete an-

Loehr said. “We are going all the
way this season.”
Plous had a more reserved
take on the season.

make it to a bowl game this
